Detailed with stripes and symbols this dark hand-woven lumbar cushion is made from the Sabra cactus by the Berber people of the Atlas mountain regions of Morocco.
The cactus silks are made from a process of harvesting the leaves of the Agave Sabra cactus for the filaments within, which are then spun and woven. Traditionally the threads were dyed with spices and plant extracts, this cushion with its dark and regal colours reminds us of the souks and riads at the close of the day, the twilight before night descends, and the whispers of stories and forgotten tales.
10% of every cushion sold from our Moroccan collection goes to support the fabulous work of the Ims'One Project, a charity dedicated to the vaccination, health, and well-being of Moroccan dogs (and some cats!) We were lucky enough to spend some time with them, and to participate in the walking of 50 + dogs along the Moroccan coastline. We challenge anyone to visit the Ims'One Project and not fall in love.
